Historein is an international, peer-reviewed, open-access electronic journal published biannually by the Cultural and Intellectual History Society (Athens). It is both historical and interdisciplinary in its perspective.


George Dertilis, born in Athens in 1939, died on 20 February 2023.


Historein would like to express its deepest condolences for the loss of George Dertilis. He was an eminent historian, an inspired teacher, a tireless and distinguished scholar, a charming and prolific writer, and a dynamic public intellectual, whose books and research activities renewed the field of history in Greece in the last thirty years. He mainly cultivated the field of Economic History. From the 1980s onward, he directed research projects in Economic History. With his Anglo-Saxon education, along with other important scholars, he contributed to the renewal of the discipline of historiography, by embracing the latest worthwhile directions in historical research, and by fusing broader epistemological requirements.
